Djuric set for more surgery

Milan Djuric will undergo surgery on his groin in ten days’ time after battling through the pain barrier for the team for the past month.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina international forward has made nine appearances since returning from groin surgery, scoring twice, but now requires surgery on the other side of his groin.

After putting the operation off in the last few weeks, head coach Lee Johnson has now decided to get the surgery booked in for December 18th.

“We went for a team walk to Costa earlier today and we were waiting for him,” Johnson said after the 2-1 win at Sheffield United.

“He was struggling to walk but he still ended up playing 45 minutes for the team; he deserves enormous credit.

“We have to be fair to him, he needs to have the operation done and we’ve been putting it off, but in the end I decided to get it booked in for December 18th.

“Hopefully we’ll get him back in three-to-five weeks and I’m looking to having Milan back fully fit and raring to go after that.”

MOUNTING INJURIES

City have further injury concerns after Korey Smith hobbled off at Bramall Lane, following the challenge that saw John Fleck shown a red card.

“He’s got a nasty gash on his ankle, which has been bleeding. I don’t think it will require stitches,” added the City boss.

“We don't know the full extent of the injury yet. He’s struggling to put pressure on his ankle at the moment; hopefully it’s just bone bruising and not broken.”

It comes at a time when City have already lost Famara Diédhiou, Eros Pisano, Jens Hegeler, Gary O’Neil, Callum O’Dowda and Ivan Lucic to long-term injuries.
